Brother-in-law of Spurs, Arsenal target Osimhen denies Napoli agreement

The brother-in-law of Lille striker Victor Osimhen says reports of an agreement with Napoli are wide of the mark.

Along with the Azzurri, the Nigeria striker has been linked with Tottenham and Arsenal.

Osita Okolo told Radio Marte: “There has been a lot of media speculation. Someone has already said that there is an agreement but this is not true. Due to COVID-19 he returned to Nigeria, he had to quarantine and immediately lost his dad after the quarantine, there was not even material time, it was not the time to make decisions.

"There have been meetings and video conferences but for now Osimhen has no agreements made neither with Napoli nor with other clubs. Naples is a fantastic city and Napoli is a very strong team, it is a great club and I am very happy when I feel that Victor is approached by Napoli, for now there is still no agreement but he has no foreclosures, the important thing is that he can play and have fun.

"In the past he happened to have promises, guarantees on the numbering and to be a protagonist and then it was not so. We want concrete promises on use and minutes, we learned the lesson after what happened at Wolfsburg and we don't want history to repeat itself. From what I know, Napoli gave this promise of continuity to him and this is obviously an important point because we don't want to repeat the bad experiences of the past."
